YFT Hosts the GSA Summit!

Written By: Judith February 26, 2010 One Comment

The Texas GSA Network and Youth First Texas are hosting a free GSA Summit on Saturday, March 6 from 10am to 4pm. The GSA Summit is an opportunity for those who are starting a GSA, involved in a GSA, and/or leading a GSA to come together and engage in a day long institute of training that will ensure your GSA (existing or budding) is functioning at its ultimate capacity.

Session topics include:

  • Assessing the Culture of YOUR GSA
  • Strategizing an Action Plan
  • Resolving Conflict through Team Building
  • Promoting Visibility via Events, Fundraising, & Community Service.

Gay Straight Alliances work to create safe environments in schools for students to support each other and learn about homophobia and other oppresisions. They also work to educate the school community about homophobia, gender identity, and sexual orientation issues while fighting discrimination, harassment, and violence in schools.

The GSA Summit will also have display tables for organizations, schools, and causes that also work to provide safer space on and within schools and universities.  WE invite all to partcipate!

If you would like to RSVP for the event or learn how to partcipate, please contact:

    I’m representing Out @ Collin, the GSA for Collin County Community College in Plano. Our president should have registered already, but I’ll be coming in his place because of conflicting schedule. Sorry about the last minute change but I look forward to the meeting!
